At the 2010 Winter NAMM show, Waves Audio announced the upcoming release of SoundGrid technology, which gives users the ability to run large numbers of Waves audio processors using standard PCs via Ethernet, far surpassing the specs of dedicated DSP-based platforms.
SoundGrid offers super low latency performance, which means users can take advantage of even more audio processors and CPU-intensive processors than ever before.
Waves is leveraging the recent advances in both Ethernet and CPU technologies to provide better, more cost-effective performance for the pro audio and live sound markets.
SoundGrid Key Benefits:
- Provides low latency platform for running Waves plug-ins
- Uses standard, off-the-shelf components: computers, switches, servers, Ethernet cables, etc.
- Integration with analog and digital mixing consoles
- Provides a complete Redundancy & Recovery system
- Upcoming SoundGrid versions will implement recording capabilities
- Live sound and touring
- Centralized processing hub for mixing, post production and broadcast facilities
- Networked audio for sound installations
